Nothing screams HOLIDAY like gold foil! Today I will show you how to use the Heidi Swapp Minc Machine to create gold foiled embellishments for a Winter layout. I must admit, I am not huge into having a bunch of different machines. I love my Silhouette Cameo and my new favorite is the Minc. It is just so versatile. Because this machine enables foil to stick to anything printed in toner, you can design and print your own graphics or download them from online, print on a toner printer and voila, gold foil everything. Another fun idea that I will show you in this video is how to use the toner paper and your steel rule dies to create a cute foil pillow box. You can either buy the toner paper made by American Crafts or you can print your own, use any die you have and then add whatever color foil. See the possibilities really are endless. For this particular layout, I added gold foil to one of the holiday tags. I first created a soft watercolor background with Distress Ink, backed my photo on some printed vellum and added fun embellishments. Surprisingly, there is not pattern paper on this layout.

To add something a little bold, I chose these super graphic black and white letter stickers from Pebbles and laid them over some white seam binding. I love the contrast of the soft ribbon, watercolor, gold embellishments and floaty picture, grounded by that bold title. To finish up I added some black India ink. I hope you enjoy this process video. I packed a lot into it and if you have any questions, please comment below! Thanks so much for stopping by!
